Chicago style is commonly used in Humanities, History, Business and some Social Science courses. Chicago provides two style options:
Notes-Bibliography Style (NB): Uses footnotes and/or endnotes, typically followed by a bibliography
Author-Date Style: In-text parenthetical citations of author(s) last name, publication year and pages, followed by a bibliography
You can work with the Chicago Manual of Style (pictured on the left) or check out the above guides depending on the style needed.
|If you cannot get access to the Chicago Manual, you can refer to Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL). Their Chicago Formatting and Style Guide includes examples and instructions for citing the most common types of sources.|
